Macavity! by T. S. Eliot
One of the best-loved poems from Old Possum's Book of Practical Cats is given a new life in this stunning picture book with illustrations from Arthur Robbins that perfectly convey all the wit and humour of Eliot's creation.
The picture books taken from Old Possum's Cats include -
‘I love MaCATity.’ (Me – It’s Macavity.) ‘Yes that’s what I said, MaCATity, because he looks like my cat and he is a very very funny naughty naughty cheat. And my name is on the cover (Arthur Robins).’ Robin, age 4, and mum, Donna
‘This was fun to read to my little sister. I read the story and she shouted “Macavity’s not there!” a lot and in her loudest voice.’ Hal, age 11
‘We loved this book! We read it once, then Hazel asked me again the next day to read the story about the cat “they can’t find”.’ Hazel, age 4, and mum, Shona
‘I like the funny police dog and the naughty cat!’ Otto, age 6
‘All the cats are naughty, aren’t they – but Macavity is the naughtiest.’ Seb, age 4
